TRIPLE TREMORS: Three small earthquakes hit the Costa Blanca this morning (Thursday)

COSTA BLANCA holidaymakers and residents were shaken after a trio of small earth tremors in the early hours of this morning (Thursday).

In the space of two hours, and with the epicentres close to Calpe, three mini-quakes hit the area, with many rushing to social media saying their whole house and items of furniture shook quite violently, especially those living in Benissa. 

The first tremor was a 3.1 magnitude at 1.45am centred a few kilometres off the coast.  This was followed by 2.0 and a 2.2 magnitude tremors just after 3am and 3.25am respectively, although these were recorded along the coast between Calpe and Moraira.
